Studies Recognition

Recognition of Secondary Education

Secondary Education certificates are validated by the Prague City Council.

Documents translated into Czech language are needed. As this process might be difficult to do from your home, the faculties can issue a provisional acceptance letter for you, and you will then need to have your secondary education recognized after your arrival.

Fee for validation by the Prague City Council: CZK 1 000

Documents required

  • a completed application
  • legalized and then officially translated Foreign Degree, Diploma or Certificate into the Czech language, made by a translator listed on the Register of Certified Forensic Experts and Translators of the Czech Republic (or an officially certified copy)
  • a legalized and then officially translated document with classes taken and hours (content and scope of foreign education) for each year of study.
  • power of attorney (for underage applicants, below the age of 18)
  • proof of payment of the administrative charge of CZK 1 000, approx. EUR 36/ USD 42)
  • your address in the Czech Republic (e.g. a copy of your passport, rent agreement)
